Diagnosed with Basilar type migraines

I was just diagnosed with Basilar-type migraines today. This after many months of different medications, a missed diagnosis of epilepsy, treatment for depression, a 5-day hospital stay for a video EEG, and complete change of lifestyle. I basically have to give up my career for I can’t seem to keep up with it and because I’m a sales rep that’s required to drive frequently and vertigo and driving don’t seem to go together.

Any words of wisdom from other BTM sufferers out there?
